for a possible weekend vote. the senate passing is good news for the victims of sandy, but the bill is also packed with projects that have nothing to do with the storm, like a new roof for the smithsonian museum. i'm sure there would like a new roof, but this is supposed to be for hurricane victims. millions for tree plantings and towns which sandy did not even pass, let alone damaged. my next guest says that is why they should have voted against it. american majority action spokesman, i just saw your tweet. you're talking about, what was it, $200 million for alaskan fisheries. you said, why alaska? >> i don't know. alaska is the only state in the union where you get a plate -- paid to live. they all have to pay taxes. they can afford fishery project. the bigger project is, why was this in the emergency bill for hurricanes in the? doesn't make any sense. 9 billion will be spent in 2013. 85 percent doesn't come until 2014 and beyond. that's not immediately. what this bill is fundamentally is a poor bill. what the senate could have done is passed the clean $9 billion loan through -- through t
seen in the past. so the question is, what's to blame? hurricane sandy for one. also, uncertainty by the fiscal cliff. nothing like a pending tax hike to take the wind out of your holiday shopping sails. >> there's folks here worried about netflix over the holiday. why? >> netflix was also a big issue and outage on christmas eve knocking out service to subscribers across the united states, canada and latin america. but the good news is that the streaming video service has been restored. netflix has 30 million streaming customers worldwide but remember that the overwhelming majority of them are in the americas so they were impacted by this. the company blaming a glitch at amazon's xlocloud computing sere in virginia. a web outage last year knocked out sites. back to you. >> refund? no? >> sounds like a plan. >> all right. cnbc's jackie deangelis, thank you. >>> do something.org is out with its list of most charitable celebrities. bieber raised more than $5 million for charity. number four, lady gaga. pledged a million dollars for sandy relief. number three, channing tatum. he and h
just saw with the sandy bill. >> if you are asking whether or not the thing we did get 60 votes for a standing order. >> you want to get to 60. between hopeful that the two caucuses, there will be 60 votes for the standing order. >> does this mean that you and perhaps the democrats are more ambitious option by the junior colleagues. >> the number of us are very deeply troubled by the idea that we produce something in violation to the rules to change the rules. the senate is a continuing body. i will not try to characterize how many are deeply troubled by the idea of the nuclear option. this has been -- never been used to change the rules. >> when the republicans were in a majority, then there was the judges. i point out with all due respect to our new york colleagues in the senate, some of them have ever been in the majority and some of them have never been in the minority which sometimes dictates behavior which when the issue is on the other foot. >> senator reid has concerned about -- is it any precaution to keep non germain amendments of the bills? >> the senate allows for no
on, getting aid to victims of superstorm sandy. by a 61-33 vote the chamber passed a measure offering $60 billion in help. it heads to the house which must approve the bill by thursday or else the process to consider the money has to start all over again. at least 113 people were killed when superstorm sandy hit in late october. the governors of new york and new jersey, the hardest hit states, have estimated damages at more than $78 billion. >>> and turning to weather. even though winter is just over a week old, millions of americans probably can't wait for spring to arrive. me, as well, yes. scenes like this in maine are playing out all across the country as snow is now on the ground in almost 65% of the lower 48 states. at least everybody's enjoying it together. look at this video from arkansas where -- in little rock, they posted a record-breaking nine inches on christmas day. and for some of you, yay, not over yet. let's bring in meteorologist bonnie schneider for a look at what is on top for today. is there an end in sight for -- >> no. no. we've got more snow, more wind and rain
for their slow response from superstorm sandy and getting power turned back on for those residents who were in the dark and the cold for a couple of weeks. our plans changed a little bit last night. we decided to spend the night in clarks summit because the road conditions deteriorated and we didn't want to go farther north. the borough president told me their snow totals were down last year and they were able to stockpile some of the salt from the roadways last year and that's what they're using for this storm. council president says they're happy this first snowstorm of the season hasn't been a major blizzard for them. >> we're on a good track this year and, you know, the weather, you take what you get. and, we're going to make lemonade out of it i guess. >> reporter: and for holiday travelers trying to make it home this weather has really thrown a wrench into their plans. a jetliner in pittsburgh actually got trapped somehow in the snow on the tarmac. as far as cancellations go, there were 1600 of them yesterday. more than 500 already today. and the airports in newark, new jersey, and al
sandy, they are upsiding the surveillance bill, they are not doing anything on the fiscal cliff. is it helpful to have john boehner have his members back in d.c. running their mouths and offering opinions to all us reporters, i think the answer is no. >> no inclination the $250,000 or below can pass through the senate right now, kay bailey hutchison said she wouldn't support that type of bill. what's harry reid left to do right now? >> i'm not sure $250,000 could get through the house or senate at this point. republicans are signaling, as kay bailey hutchison just did, they want to move to $500,000. i think that would be a tough lift considering president obama offered $400,000 with $2 trillion in deficit reduction. >> from where you sit right now, i mean, you're so into the house gop, jake, i'm surprised you didn't end up in boehner's suitcase, we look like we're going over. >> it looks like that's the case and that's what gop aides are telling us today, it's very difficult and democrats are saying this too, it's difficult to see a way we avert the fiscal cliff at this point wi
on right now. money for sandy, the money -- >> what's the latest on that? really quickly. >> the senate's got to pass it. amendments to be taken care of. you say you don't have enough time to do this legislation that will keep us from drifting in to a recession, we need to do the same thing, the same amount of courage to deal with sandy right away and stop nitpick this legislation. >> congressman -- >> new jersey and new york are presenters when it comes to taxes. our state's pay high taxes. when were there when katrina victims, that's beside the point of red or blue states. you do what you have to do. that's what needs to be done right now. not only is the budget critical right now, sandy's critical and a lot of other thing that is need to be done there. amt. >> all right. >> look at the folks -- >> congressman. >> don't have a payroll. >> congressman, i have to cut you off. >> okay. >> but thank you so much. >> thank you, craig. >> keep us posted on the progress if there is any. >>> we have developing news now from the senate. just moments ago, vice president joe biden swore in hawaii
has just passed a $60 billion aid bill for communities slammed by super storm sandy. that vote was 61 for, 33 against. sandy road ashore devastating several areas and the senate rejected a republican amendment to cut the immediate cost to just 23 million clearing the way for final action on the $60 billion bill. the bill now goes to the house where its passage is uncertain because of the non-sandy-related spending items that are in the bill. typical sausage making for washington. >>> let's get to our panel. here now is blake zeff, former obama campaign aide and washington editor. robert, have you heard anything in the last couple of hours that suggests to you that somehow by monday mitch mcconnell and harry reid will sing kumbaya, pass something in the senate that also passes the house? >> i'm not so sure they'll be sing kumbaya, but the real story today is that there's movement on capitol hill. reid and mcconnell come out of that white house meeting and they're ready to haggle over some differences. what i expect to come to the floor is what president obama's talking about a 250 thre
is losing ground after jumping 3%. we have sandy smith at the chicago mercantile exchange. you told us oil would hit $100. we're on our way. >> we are down with today's session. people stepped in to the oil market because it was struggling. it is still negative for the year at underperforming and crude oil is down a percent and again today the word is he'll like it did deal by the end of the year and those who do as an say it will not be right where it will be bad. we still are not talking about growing jobs so there is negative sentiment crude-oil prices down when typically during of big storm prices would go up but they're dropping because there is fear we will enter a recession and the country will struggle and they say if we enter the new year we will see higher taxes, lower home values in people struggling. it is not a good. they say that's speaker boner will cave in and we will not get a good deal. >> calls it these oil cliffhanger. >> it is rattling explaining why a trading volume was down there may be at camp saying it is a good price. exxonmobil refinery near chicago jeff? >> and
first responders at sandy hook and columbine were the teachers themselves. they put their lives in front of these bullets and in front of the shooters. let's not disarm these folks. we are certainly not training them to roam the hall ways looking for the shooter. we want to institute this conceal carry option in line with the district policies or school policies for the lockdown. when the lockdown fails, when the shooter gets into the classroom, the teacher doesn't need to do a lot of tactical training to access and engage a firearm pointed at the shooter that is to ten feet away and press the trigger. alleviating the option of jumping in front of the kids to soak up the bullet. >> cara costello talked with david keene about the move to arm teachers. here's what he had to say. >> 23,000 schools today that have armed guards. private schools and public schools. cops in the school program was initiated in the 1990s by bill clinton. whether an individual school wants that protection or doesn't want that protection is really up to the individual school and when we made that statement, whether
if not millions of americans. indeed we saw with hurricane sandy what happens when a major piece of critical infrastructure like your electricity grid goes down for a prolonged period. and our cyber infrastructure, our cyber networks, are ripe for those types of attacks. >> reporter: janet napolitano by the way is a member of the council on foreign relations. this attack was apparently detected relatively quickly but, jon, it may underscore the vulnerability a lot of computer networks face in this country. jon: well, so the website is working and it was, as you say, it was discovered fairly early. how does it work? what did they do? what did they accomplish? >> reporter: you described this as a drive-by attack. the idea wasn't really so much to target the website so much as the people that use it. we talk about high-profile membership within the council on foreign relations. you're talking about former presidents. even current defense and intelligence officials that mavis it this site on a regular basis the idea here for hackers was to kind of get into this website and then get into the syst
in the wake of the tragedy at sandy hook elementary school? >>> we're still no closer to defeating our enemy. >> the nation's top spy is speaking out about "zero dark 30." >>> hi, everyone. welcome to the white house. pretty cool, huh? >> and a little later what we can expect from first lady michelle obama in her second term. that and a christmas story that is bound to warm your heart. we begin with this live image from honolulu, hawaii where the president and first lady have just arrived. hundreds of hawaiians started gathering saturday to welcome the senator home and pay respects. inouye was a recipient for the medal of honor for his braver. kristen welker joins me now from honolulu. a warm christmas, i see. >> reporter: yes indeed. it is lovely here. >> the president is on christmas vacation and so is congress. that doesn't mean they don't have work to do as the fiscal cliff looms. i take it this is a working vacation. >> reporter: white house officials have described this as a working vacation and talks are going on behind the scenes between white house staffers and hill staffers. the re

so much. i want to turn to the legal fallout from the sandy hook elementary school tragedy. a lawyer is now looking to sue the state on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor. the attorney filed a $100 million claim, saying the killings traumatized his client and also accused the state of failing to protect the students from harm. the state has immunity unless the claims commission grant permission to suchl. >> you know the ones who are taking more money out of your paycheck are now getting pay raises. we'll explain. >>> you heard milk prices could double, triple, the whole budget battle, a whole lot more to the story. >>> and documents just made public show a rare source of friction between president ronald reagan and margaret thatcher.

that the end of the year has seen the hurricane sandy issues and hit with that and also in the news cycle, massacre in newtown? peoples' spirits might be on the downside. >> right. to be quite frank, i mean, america's emotionally spent and i don't think they necessarily feel that they want to spend money on themselves. given everything that's been happening. rather give that money to people in need. >> seeing a spike in donations, contributions, charitable contributions? >> i think people are taking that money and donating it to chair it ritable contributions don't feel like spending. >> talk about the fiscal cliff. the uncertainty to witness ticking down to the end of the year and the, you know, people say that we might be borrowing from the future to think about the paychecks but basically people across the country have to consider the fact that the paychecks might take a hit at the first of the year. >> right. absolutely. hampton was on earlier talking about what will happen to those paychecks in terms of paychecks if we go over the fiscal cliff and a real concern here f. you look at t
to that? there was a bill introduced by the ways and means committee in the house, sandy levin that called for this legislation. the speaker was going to bring it up to kill it but he kobt kill it and then we moved to plan b, the debacle of all debacles. it's the mother of all debacles. that was brought up in an effort to send us something. he couldn't even pass it among the republicans it was so absurd. he meaning the speaker. so it's very clear now, mr. president, that the speaker's number one goal is to get elected speaker on january 3rd. the house is not even here. he's told me he'll give them two days to get back here, 48 hours, not two days, 48 hours. they don't even have enough of the leadership here to meet to talk about it. they've done it with conference calls. people are spread all over this country because the speaker is basically waiting for january 3rd. now, the president campaigned on raising taxes on people making more than $250 thou,000 a year. the bush tax cut will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the el

are getting privately trained use handguns in the wake of sandy hook shootings. other states are going farther. arizona's attorney general proposing to change the state law that would allow an educator in each school to carry a gun. the "l.a. times," the city of los angeles collected more than -- this story is unbelievable. they collected more than 2,000 firearms part of a guns for groceries buyback program. 75 assault weapons were included in that and two rocket launchers were turned in for cash. >> they got steak and shrimp for the rocket launchers. what about teachers with guns in classrooms? >> i mean, it's amazing to me. i had randy wine gart ten of the american federation of teachers on my show last night. it's outrageous to me on two levels. one, you're going to put more guns into schools it to try to deal with getting guns out of the school. you don't have money for students. you don't have money for sports and arts. you don't have money for anything you need in school, but you're going to find money to buy guns, bullets and training for teachers? where did the conservatives come up wi
